Respect your elders....

A wealthy old lady decided to go on a photo safari in Africa. She took her faithful pet, an older poodle, along for company.

One day, the poodle starts chasing butterflies and before long the poodle discovers that he is lost. So, wandering about, he notices a leopard heading rapidly in his direction with the obvious intention of having lunch.

The poodle thinks, "OK, I'm in deep trouble now! Then he noticed some bones on the ground close by, immediately settling down to chew on the bones with his back to the approaching leopard.

Just as the leopard is about to leap, the poodle exclaims loudly, "Boy, that was one delicious leopard. I wonder if there are any more around here."

Hearing this, the leopard halts his attack in mid-stride, a look of terror comes over him, and he slinks away into the trees.

"Whew," says the leopard. "That was close. That poodle nearly had me."

Meanwhile, a young monkey who had been watching the whole scene from a nearby tree figures he can but this knowledge to good use and trade it for protection from the leopard. So, off he goes. But the poodle saw him heading after the leopard with great speed, and figured that something must be up.

The monkey soon catches up with the leopard, spills the beans and strikes a deal for himself with the leopard..

The leopard is furious at being made a fool of and says, "Here monkey, hop on my back and see what's going to happen to that coniving canine."

Now the poodle sees the leopard coming with the monkey on his back, and thinks, "What am I going to do now?" But instead of running, the old poodle sits down with his back to his attackers, pretending he hasn't seen them yet...and just when they get close enough to hear the poodle says....

"Where's that damn monkey? I sent him off half an hour ago to bring me another leopard!"

Remember - Youth will ALWAYS lose out to the wisdom of their elders.
